So, I love chocolate. And I love homemade baked goods. But I don’t love heating up my kitchen when it is sweltering hot outside. What’s a poor chocolate-craving girl to do in that situation?
Why, make a no-bake treat, of course!
This recipe is reminiscent of the classic no-bake cookie, but it’s a little easier, it firms up better, and it makes one heck of a good candy! (And if you stretch your mind a bit, they could almost be considered somewhat healthy too, at least for a candy.)
Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Truffles
- 2 T. butter or margarine
- 1 c. chocolate chips
- 3/4 c. peanut butter
- 2 c. old-fashioned, rolled oats
- 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1. In a medium saucepan, melt butter or margarine, chocolate chips and peanut butter over low heat until smooth. Gradually stir in oats until fully combined.
2. Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, scoop out balls of mixture and place on aluminum foil or waxed paper. Let firm slightly and cool until safe to handle, about 10 minutes. Roll balls in powdered sugar until completely covered. Return to foil or waxed paper and refrigerate until firm. Store covered in the refrigerator.
Mmmm…this recipe definitely works for me, and I bet it will work for you too! (Assuming you like chocolate that is.)
